    Quick, composed and physically dominant - Virgil van Dijk is the defender who has it all. But from washing dishes while he tried to secure his first professional contract to facing rejection and serious illness, it didn't always seem as if Virgil was going to make it to the top.
    This is the inspiring story of how a boy from Breda used his determination and self-belief to become one of the greatest defenders in the world.




    This fictionalised biography is one of the new titles in Ransom's Tales from the Pitch series.

The players are from all walks of life and have faced failure, injury and rejection, making these moving and inspirational stories.

    Tales of the Pitch are easy to read and very fast-paced reads. At only 120 pages long, printed on cream paper with a dyslexia-friendly font, these are ideal books for reluctant and dyslexic readers.
